I need to find antivirus for Windows 2003 server. I only have one server. Does anyone know how I can buy the software for just one server (no workstations) for around $50 is possible.
We use Symantec Corporate Edition antivirus and it isn't terribly riddled with bloat like the consumer Norton packages. Eset has a pretty solid antivirus package but you can't get it for Windows Server at that price. Is this just for a file server? AVG File Server Edition is good and you can get it for $99/year for a server with five connections. I've used this successfully on Workstations and it had kept my machines clean and running smoothly.
I can't give you advice on which antivirus to use, but I can tell you which ones NOT to use: Stay away from McAfee and Norton as they are the most bloat and processor intensive packages I've seen.
I don't have an active monitor running, but I do run a manual virusscan from time to time. I can recommend Kasperksy for this (they're free for scanning).
I used about a year BitDefender After that We stooped using NetBios and folder sharing So I now run without any antivirus system. I can said that is most of my requirements was above the expected for this product.
But I still wondering Do We need antivirus system for servers. If it only run on services such as SQL, IIS and others
Avast should cover your needs.
